Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Sprinkle the turkey drumsticks with the pepper, salt and paprika and rub in the spices. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sear each drumstick on all sides until golden and crisp, a few minutes per drumstick.
Combine the stock, tomatoes, parsley, maple syrup, garlic, onions, bay leaf, thyme and butter beans in a roasting pan. Add the drumsticks, cover and roast for 2 hours.
Ladle the butter beans and sauce onto the serving plates and top with a drumstick.
